Overview

When professional baseball player, Zach Foster, agreed to go into business with five of his best friends, he didn’t expect their little sports bar to evolve into a national chain, spanning fifty states, but it did. The business helps to fill the void in Zach’s life during the off-season, but when he closes his eyes at night, he still can’t forget the girl who left that gaping hole in his heart when she left him standing at the altar without so much as a note to explain her disappearance.

Lauren ‘Rennie’ Alexander would do anything to fulfill a sick child’s wish. Not only is it her job, as director of the Sky’s the Limit Foundation, but it’s her passion. So when one of her volunteers brings her a letter scribbled in crayon, complete with an application from the little boy’s loving parents, Rennie is ready to make another dream come true. Until she realizes that sick little boy’s dream is her worst nightmare. He wants to meet his hero, baseball player, Zach Foster. The same lying, cheating, jerk who broke Rennie’s heart. It’s seems she has no choice but to take one for the team.

    If there¿s one flaw to this novel, it is having a common plot. I

    If there’s one flaw to this novel, it is having a common plot. It lacks the element of surprise that made most novel exciting and the readers looking forward to what the next page awaits. However, even though I have read about a hundred of this kind of novel, and even though I have an inkling of how the story will progress and end, I find this novel refreshing for the following reasons…
    First, in this day and age where erotic romance seems to be the mainstream of romance literature, it’s nice to read about stories like this where you get to see or take a second look at what love is about. This book tells about the kind of love that took time to bloom and as well as feelings that have stood the test of time. It’s like an adult fairy tale. The kind of goes happily ever after surviving the realities of life.
    Second, the writer has a way with words. Emotions are something that are not easily put into words. Yet, despite the common plot, the author have manage to dress it with raw emotions that one that you can feel piercing into your heart just by reading them. And that was what made the book so hard to put down even if you can guess what will happen next. I may have read a hundred of stories like this, but I definitely didn’t feel all the emotions I have felt in this novel a hundred times. Only few authors can make me feel that way which makes me think that having the emotions by the characters be felt by the readers deep within is actually a gift. Something that you either have or you don’t. And Cheryl Douglas definitely have that gift.
    Next is the hero Zach. I love how his feelings were very apparent from the beginning till the end. In romance novels like this, the hero are usually the latter to define their feelings for the heroine. But Zach here was not like that which made him an endearing book boyfriend material.
    And since this is a series, it makes you curious about all the characters aside from Zach and Rennie. The author have manage to squeeze really interesting characters other than the main ones that will have you looking forward to the next book.

    Excellent!

    These four books are excellent stories... Not long - 175 - 190 pages... But a complete enjoyable read about boy meets girl and fun and sex begin... Well written with a good story line and good characters...

    This was a sweet book about making mistakes when we are young and being able to fix things years later. The story about Zack and Rennie was very enjoyable. It was a nice quick read. Zack and Rennie are high school sweethearts who find each other again after 10 years. I really liked Zack's character, even though he is a professional baseball player he's still down to earth and has no problem showing his affection and even talking about his feelings. Those, to me are the greatest men.

    This was a pretty good book. If you're looking for steamy, it isn't for you. However, if you're looking for a nicely developed love story about soul mates then it is for you. The only reason this received a 4 and not a 5 is because I really didn't like Rennie's excuse for leaving. The conversation she heard was mean and terrible. It was enough for them to postpone the wedding. But, not enough for her to run away pregnant. Other than that the story was wonderful.
